In late-March, BILD Alberta began engaging multiple ministries and the Premier’s office to position the industry as a key driver in Alberta’s economic recovery. While the need to expedite legislative changes that reduce red tape and housing costs remains critical, we have also been advocating for the following:
1. Strategic investments in infrastructure that promote private sector investment in new residential communities and development projects.
2. A tax credit for all forms of renovation to stimulate consumer spending.
The Ministers of Infrastructure and Transportation have indicated that stimulating private sector investment will be a central factor in the decisions associated with infrastructure funding. We continue conversations with other ministries making sure our industry is always in the forefront during the province’s recovery.
